Milan Bogunovic continues the Digital Marketplace service update with what we are doing next.
Digital Services framework
The Digital Marketplace Director, Warren Smith, set out his vision earlier this year. Over the last couple of months we’ve been sharing more on this in a series of blog posts.
Digital Services 2 (DS2) was due to close on 5 May 2016. We’ve now extended it to ensure that buyers can complete their existing procurements even after Digital Outcomes and Specialists services are available on the Digital Marketplace.
The Digital Marketplace made the buying process simpler, clearer and faster for the Suffolk and Norfolk constabularies. Stephen Perrins explains how.
Suppliers will be able to apply to Digital Outcomes and Specialists when it opens during the week beginning 7 December.
The aim of the Digital Marketplace is to make it simpler, clearer and faster for those in the public sector to buy what they need.
In February 2016, the Government Digital Service (GDS) and the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) will replace Digital Services 2 (DS2) with Digital Outcomes and Specialists (DOS).
The Digital Marketplace is transforming the way the public sector commissions digital and cloud services, by making it simpler, clearer and faster for them to buy what they need.
We published the Digital Marketplace strategy in March 2015. It’s made up of 7 action points that outline our commitments for developing and growing the Digital Marketplace as a commissioning platform.
Tony Singleton said in his post ‘Redesigning the Digital Services framework’ that we’d publish an analysis of the themes that came out of the market engagement event on 23 August.
